The Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute, a conservative women’s organization, has featured Ying Ma in its newly released annual Great American Conservative Women Calendar for 2016. The other women featured in the calendar include conservative luminaries such as former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, Senator Joni Ernst and Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn.

The Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute’s mission is to prepare women for effective conservative leadership and promote leading conservative women.

The calendar, like much of CBLPI’s mission, is meant to inspire young women to reach not only for their dreams but also to hold high the timeless conservative values that have sustained America since our founding. Among these principles, CBLPI promotes personal responsibility, traditional values, individual freedom, economic liberty and limited government.

Copies of the 2016 calendar can be ordered here. They are available for a small donation to CBLPI and free to students and members of the press.

Inside a modern lecture hall at The George Washington University (GW), a well-respected guest lecturer from China addressed me and the other women in his audience as “female comrades.”

I nearly spat out my tea.

It was a lazy April Saturday afternoon in Washington, DC. I had come to GW to attend a symposium sponsored by the university’s Confucius Institute, a Chinese language and cultural center. Meant to be a vehicle for exporting China’s soft power, Confucius Institutes—funded by Beijing and numbering over four hundred—have sprung up around the world during the past decade.

China’s large-scale construction of artificial islands in the hotly disputed waters of the South China Sea has led many in Washington to call for a tougher stance against Beijing. While China no doubt bears much responsibility for pursuing murky and ambitious territorial claims with aggressive actions, contending with China’s rise also requires a lot more than just getting tough.

During the course of the Obama administration, Beijing has reacted negatively not just to the administration’s gestures of goodwill but also to its more confrontational actions and rhetoric. A look back at the missteps early in the Obama administration would offer a useful guide to prescribing future action. The China Challenge: Shaping the Choices of a Rising Power, a new book by noted China scholar Thomas Christensen, provides precisely such a guide.

–Column by Ying Ma

During Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s visit to Washington, D.C. this week to discuss trade and security issues and address a joint session of Congress, his penchant for whitewashing his country’s World War II history will be closely scrutinized.

Already, a bipartisan group of Congressmen have called on Mr. Abe to “squarely face history.” In a letter last week to Japanese Ambassador to the United States Kenichiro Sasae, 25 members of the House of Representatives urged the Japanese leader to use his upcoming visit to “formally reaffirm and validate” past apologies issued by Japan for its wartime aggression.

However, many others in Congress are either unfamiliar with Japan’s historical amnesia or happy to gloss over it themselves. Those who care about the U.S.’s moral leadership and interests in Asia should urge Mr. Abe to get right with history.

Heritage Foundation, March 20, 2015

Ying Ma addressed the Conservative Women’s Network in a speech titled “Prevailing Over the Welfare State.”  She shared her personal story of prevailing over the poverty, lawlessness and general dysfunction of inner-city Oakland, California. She drew distinct contrasts between the “welfare state” approach to addressing poverty versus an approach based on hard work, individual responsibility and educational achievement.

In the speech, Ms. Ma also said “No, thank you” to “bossy liberal women” who reguarly claim to speak for all women.

The Conservative Women’s Network is made up of over 1,000 women in the Washington, DC, area who are policy analysts, stay-at-home mothers, students, organization presidents and more. Its monthly luncheons take place at the Heritage Foundation and are co-hosted by the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute.

[Correction: At approximately 8:14 in the video, Ms. Ma said, “The Oakland of my childhood had a whole lot of economic equality and fairness to go around.” She meant to say the China of her childhood.]
